 Andre Previn ( born April 6, 1929, Berlin, Germany—died February 28, 2019, New York, New York, U.S.), German-born American pianist, composer, arranger, and conductor, especially sympathetic to French, Russian, and English music of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Previn’s family moved to Los Angeles in 1939. While still a teenager he was recognized as a gifted jazz pianist, and he performed various orchestrating and arranging tasks for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in the 1940s and then worked under contract with MGM from 1952 to 1960. Working for various studios, he won Academy Awards for his music scores for Gigi (1958), Porgy and Bess (1959), Irma la Douce (1963), and My Fair Lady (1964).

He appeared in a guest conductor role with major orchestras in Europe and the United States.

He composed in varied genres throughout his career. His works included Symphony for Strings (1962); concerti for cello (1968), guitar (1971), piano (1985), and violin (2001); orchestral works such as Principals (1980) and Honey and Rue (1992); chamber music, including String Quartet with Soprano (2003); the opera A Streetcar Named Desire (1998; based on the play by Tennessee Williams); other theatrical music; and songs. His many Grammy Awards were in multiple categories: musical shows (1958 and 1959), pop (1959), jazz (1960 and 1961), and classical (several awards from 1973).

Previn wrote extensively about music. His books included Music Face to Face (1971), Orchestra (1979), André Previn’s Guide to Music (1983; editor), André Previn’s Guide to the Orchestra (1986), and No Minor Chords: My Early Days in Hollywood (1991).

In 1996 he was created a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE), and in 1998 he received a Kennedy Center Honor for lifetime achievement in music.
